Golden State – New Jersey
18 dec. 2006 NBA
One of the great NBA teams , the Nets have some really problems on this season start. They have great players , Kidd , Carter , Jeffersson , but winning seems to be a problem for them. With 9 wins and 14 loses , they re on 2nd place in the weak Atlantic divison.
New Jersey has lost two straight games while scoring a total of only 160 points and shooting 38 percent from the field. Carter can t find a decent shape and that s seems to be the team problem. The star swingman has scored just 24 total points in the last two games while shooting 23 percent (9-for-38) from the field.
Nenad Krstic had a season-high 27 points Saturday for the Nets, but they lost 90-82 to Detroit. Krstic, New Jersey’s first-round pick from the 2002 draft, is averaging a career-high 16.4 points and 6.8 rebounds per game.
I really think that today , the situation will change. The Nets need this win ,to get out of this really bad streak , and to look forwward for the next games played on the road.
Warriors allowed 100+ points in 9 of last 10 games while their defensive skills average is 111.2 in last 10 games. But against Nets they always struggle and last time when they won in New Jersey was Feb. 28, 1997. Poor defense has been Golden State’s main problem on the road, where the Warriors are allowing 115.1 points per game .
So today s pick goes to :
New Jersey -6 @ 1,90 played at Canbet
